Colour INKspiration #35

 Colour INKspiration

Evening all!  Just popping in to share our new colour challenge over on our Face book page at Colour INKspiration. Feel free to join in and play along. Just click on the link or banner above to be redirected and then request to join...Simple!

Well, for this hop we are doing it a little differently. With the fabulous new colour combinations in the Stampin Up! families.
Stampin' Up! ® has just had a major colour revamp so to start off the new catalogue year at Colour INKspiration we've decided to feature a Colour Collection for the first challenge each month (2nd Wednesday) until we have showcased them all! The second challenge in the month (4th Wednesday) will be a Pinterest inspired pic as per usual just to mix it up a bit. This month we are starting off with the NEUTRALS COLLECTION and you can choose any 3 colours from that range for your challenge project. We are also changing the rules about what else you can add to the mix; essentially just the Basics - Whisper White, Very Vanilla and Basic Black as well as metallics.

I've teamed up the lovely new Grey Granite, Merry Merlot & Night of Navy with Very Vanilla from our Basics family to create one for guys.
As Merry Merlot is a brand new colour, l was short on coordinating dsp, so l inked up the Diagonal Lines background stamp (retired) and stamped it on some Very Vanilla cardstock.

If you've been happily hopping you would have come from Rachel Palmieri and her lovely friend project, if so, keep hopping to be inspired by Erin Gunson and her lovely project.

Just Add Ink #412...Choose two!

Good Morning! 

It's time to share this weeks Just Add Ink challenge and the lovely Lou has challenged us to add two of the elements above to our projects for a fun challenge twist!
Having just received some of the gorgeous new products from Stampin Up! I decided to ink up one that will no doubt become a fave "Accented Blooms". I love that the punch from Truly Tailored carried over to coordinate with this set and l have a heap of ideas in my head for this one.

I used a combination of SU Blends and Bic markers for colouring and l cant wait to get my hands on some of the new blend colours once available.

My two elements are "Spots & Speckles"

The rest of the team have created some real "WOW" projects, so make sure you pop over to the blog and check those out!

Stamp Review Crew...Beautiful Bouquet.

 Stamp Review Crew

Hey there! It's Monday and that means we have a blog hop happening over at Stamp Review Crew and for this one we are showcasing the "Beautiful Bouquet" bundle.
This is such a sweet set and has so many lovely little details, that make it so easy to create a pretty card.
I've gone soft and springy with lots of pastels using an array of "Subtles" ink pads in Pool Party, So Saffron, Blushing Bride, Soft Sea Foam & Old Olive.
To create my vase, l used the cake framelit from "Cake Soiree" in Whisper White and some dsp from the Delightful Daisy pack, added some Subtles enamel dots, tiny rhinestones and a Silver glimmer heart to finish it off.

So many gorgeous projects on this hop! If you are happily hopping you would have just landed here from Mickey Roberts and her fabulous project and now you are off to visit Debra Burgin and her always inspiring creations!

Just Add Ink #410...Inspiration!

Check out this gorgeous, colourful inspiration we have to play with over at Just Add Ink Thanks Jo! There are so many fun elements and those colours are just so pretty!

I've gone with the "Oh so Eclectic" bundle, as it's only just landed in my playroom. I was a bit slow to warm to this set, but it really is so versatile and fun with all of the different ways you can create with it.

My colours are the "Oh So Yummy" Coastal Cabana and Flirty Flamingo which are returning to our SU colour palette...Yay for that! And I've also used Lemon Lime Twist & Peekaboo Peach (sadly retiring).

The rest of the team have created some amazing and colourful projects to help inspire, so make sure you pop over to the challenge blog for a peek and hopefully join in the JAI fun!

Just Add Ink #409...Eclipse Technique!

Happy Friday friends! We have a new challenge starting over at Just Add Ink today and for this one Rachael has challenged us to include the "Eclipse Technique" on our projects.
I decided to give my "Beautiful Bloom" stamp a final workout before it retires, mind you, this wont be going any further than my stamp shelf as l think this is my fave of all SU large flower images, so l'll be holding onto to this beauty!
Clean and simple in design, using the SU Blends for colouring in Old Olives and Daffodil Delight...In hindsight though, l think the celebrate sentiment would look better either embossed or popped up on a little panel. Both sentiments used are from the Amazing You (sab) set and the Celebrate you thinlits.

*EDITED VERSION*   It really was bugging me, so here is the stepped up version.

*First version*

Don't forget to stop by the challenge blog and be inspired by the fun ways the rest of design team have used this technique.

Just Add Ink #408...Colour!

It's Friday once again and that means a new Just Add Ink challenge is up. This week Rochelle has given us this "Oh so pretty" colour palette to play with.

I've gone with another "Flying Home" project using a combination of Stampin Blends & Stampin Up markers for colouring. All of the Powder Pink colouring has received a liberal dose of Wink of Stella to give it loads of sparkle (not that its visible in the pics).
I've also included the pretty floral element from the SAB set "Lots of Lavender" and some retired Wild Wasabi dsp.

The rest of the design team have outdone themselves this week, with some stunning projects to get your mojo flowing, so don't forget to pop by the challenge blog and check them out!
